Sending prayers of comfort to all of you. Sincerely Boyd O'Rourke and Family
Rosalea and Family, I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. He was a kind soul that truly cared about others and was always ready with supportive encouragement, a funny joke or a perfect Seinfeld reference. His contributions to the entire northeast Missouri region as the CEO of the Northeast Missouri Health Council helped so many families and are a part of his lifelong legacy of service. It was an honor to work for Jim and I will always remember his kindness.
I was sorry to learn of Jim’s death. I hadn’t seen him in a long time. I worked with him when he was the administrator of the Marengo Memorial Hospital and I had a satellite dermatology clinic there. I still have a medical themed necktie that he gave me! He was a really great guy! I’m sorry for your loss.

Rosalea and Family: So sorry to learn of Jim's death. Wonderful memories of Jim and you in these later years. May God bless you with the joy of memories of a full and generous life.
Rosalea and all of Jim's family, I will miss Jim coming by every morning on his walk, and teasing the dickens out of me. I remember a few years ago, when he suggested, that instead of planting flowers along the sidewalk, I should plant vegetables, so he could pick them on his way by. He was always thinking up some good idea. One day, he said to me "I see a weed here", so I said , "Any time you see a weed, you are welcome to pick it"...he laughed. I have to say, the first time I saw Rosalea, she thought I was my twin sister, who she knew from the school in Kirksville, Missouri. After she got over the shock, she told me, she had twin grandchildren. So sorry, for your loss thinking of you all at this difficult time. Warm regards, Carolyn Hoxton
